Yvette Daniel

I am a culinary enthusiast with a deep love of fresh, clean foods prepared with authentic culinary honesty. Spain honors these traditions and slow method culinary process which is the basis of Spain’s famed cuisine.

As an intuitive cook and former Chef/Owner of the Wooden Spoon Restaurant in Richmond, Virginia I am honored to share Spain’s delectable cuisine with my family, friends and guests.

I am an American/Spanish dual citizen, mother of two and grandmother to four adorable girls. Spain is my great love and passion! I have long held the dream to share my love of Spain; her wine, food & culture with others and this is now a reality through the creation of Luxury Sun Tours. I am a hope-filled romantic, a dreamer and believer of manifesting wishes of the heart.

I think I was born a hodiphile (“one who loves to travel”) because I have had wanderlust since I can remember. My real globetrotting started though when
I was seventeen years old and I have not stopped since.
Most people think travelling is a way to escape but I have always found it a way to discover
new things about myself. With each trip I have somehow redefined my life. There truly is something magical about immersing yourself in another country, culture, tradition and language that forces you to open up to a whole new world of possibilities.

No surprise I ended up in a career in television and video production that brought me to travel the corners of the earth over the past twenty plus years. My favorite travel companion is my daughter who began flying before she could walk.

One of my most favorite place that will forever be imbed in my heart is Spain. The rich culture, experiences and adventures that have always awaited me there is something I want to share with the world. That is how we birthed the idea of building a like minded community of people who want to share passionate adventures travelling and discovering hidden gems of the world.
